There is discrimination against those with ADD.
You can't blame those who don't believe in its existence. ADD DOES sound like the perfect excuse for someone who is lazy. (which is a common lable for with people ADD)
And you can't blame people for thinking people with ADD must be mentally retarded. It IS considered to be a learning disability.
As a result, I wouldn't dare to include such a thing on any written application.
(like my college apps)
I believe there are a lot of good things that have come from my being ADD.
But obviously there are obstacles.
Part of becoming sucessful despite such obstacles is learning how work around things that can't be "fixed."
What I would like to happen in this thread is a sharing of experiences with ADD and hopefully lessons learned. How to better manage.
